Find the Perfect Rental in 4 Easy Steps 

Know When to Look

The earlier one starts looking the better, but make sure the move date is acceptable and not too soon. Typically, rentals are grabbed quickly and landlords do not want to hold a property for more than a few weeks. In the event an individual is under a lease agreement, look into what it takes to move out of a current rental property, and if there are fees involved with leaving early.

As far as times of the year, typically winter months are going to have lower monthly rates because less people want to move in the wet and cold weather.

Affordability and Credit Score 

A credit score gives a person negotiating power in terms of the rent, and how large of a deposit is needed. If a score is low, a landlord may require a larger security deposit up front.

When looking for a rental, a monthly payment should be no more than 30 percent of a gross income.  

Hire an Agent

Working with an agent is the best way to ensure to find the right property. Agencies have first access to listings, and may even know of rentals that an individual would not be able to find without them.

Always Research

After finding the perfect Vacaville rental, do not just sign away without conducting proper research. View the neighborhood at different times of the day or talk to the neighbors to see what they think. Talk to the landlord to know how they will handle repairs and other issues.
